Pyongyang, November 5 (KCNA) — Following is the full text of a statement for solidarity with the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) and the Korean people which was adopted at the 19th International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties (IMCWP).
We, participants in the 19th IMCWP, held in St. Petersburg, Russia on November 2-3, 2017 extend wholehearted support to and solidarity with the WPK and the Korean people in the struggle to safeguard the socialist cause and ensure peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the region from threats of aggression and war by the U.S.
The WPK and the Korean people unwaveringly hold high the banner of socialism and victoriously advance the socialist cause even in the face of war threats and sanctions by U.S. imperialism and its followers.
The communist and workers’ parties, in the spirit of international justice and for the sake of global peace and security, strongly condemn and categorically reject the reckless war threats and inhumane sanctions by U.S. imperialism and its followers that seek to obliterate the socialist system of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and to engulf the Korean peninsula, the region and the entire world in a calamitous nuclear war.
The just cause of the WPK and the Korean people to build a powerful socialist nation by embodying the people-first principle under the wise leadership of Comrade Kim Jong Un, chairman of the WPK, is a great contribution to defending and victoriously advancing the socialist cause on the global scale.
Expressing full support to the statement of the chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK in which the strong will to fight against U.S. imperialism to the end was declared, we emphatically call upon progressive parties and organizations of the world to step up international solidarity movement in support of the just cause of the WPK and the Korean people in hearty response to the open letter of the Central Committee of the WPK that called for joint action and united front to smash the reckless moves of war and aggression by the U.S. imperialists.
